Today Sally and I took a drive thru Acadia National Park. The entrance to the park is right outside of Bar Harbor. The drive around the park was unbelievable!! Don't know how else to describe it. Because it's a national park I was able to use my senior park pass. You can purchase it at age 62 at any national park or any National Park office for $10. With the pass, you never have to pay again to enter a national park. Anyway, the drive thru Acadia was amazing. The road winds partway along the coast and then goes thru deep green forests. We drove to the top of cadillac mountain where we were able to see Bar Harbor and a panaramic view of Frenchman's bay. There were two cruise ships anchored in the harbor today and you can see one of them in the picture I took. The photograph's do not do justice to just how fantastic the Bar Harbor area is. We got back to the campgrounds at about 4:00 this afternoon and we are now enjoying a chilled glass of wine. Life is sooo good!!
